About TA Prep

Takoma Academy Preparatory School is the exciting private parochial co-educational elementary school formed from the foundation of the Sligo Adventist and John Nevins Andrews Schools, two institutions that have each proudly served the community for over a century. Located in Takoma Park, Maryland, on the campus with Takoma Academy and just a few blocks from Washington Adventist University, our beautiful, fully renovated school is part of an educational community that will cultivate your child’s dreams and aspirations.

TA Prep offers a comprehensive program for children ages 2½ through 8th grade. As part of the largest Protestant school system in the world, our diversity offers rich possibilities for friendships and cultural experiences within the context of Adventist Christian education and fellowship.

At TA Prep, children begin an educational journey that will take them through college, preparing them to go confidently wherever God guides them. Surrounded by bright and inspiring facilities, innovative technology, the best teachers, and strong Christian values, TA Prep students are put on a path to becoming critical thinkers, achievers, servant leaders, and peacebuilders.
